Topic Wiki

There are no Credit Cards that will cover Liability.
Visa, Amex, MasterCard and Discover will cover Loss Damage Waiver / Collision (CDW/LDW)

Cards that cover CDW/LDW in Israel:
Chase: Sapphire Preferred ($95 annual fee)
American Express Gold $195AF
Discover (accepted in Israel as Diners' Club): More, Open Road, Miles, Motiva (none have annual fees)   Policy link

You must present at the time of rental a copy of your policy or a document from the CC company stating that the insurance coverage applies to Israel . You will still have to purchase 3rd Party Liability, but you will save some shekels and have no deductible for damages.

Visa phone number : 800-VISA-911

Visa does NOT cover:
  • Cadillac Escalade
  • Mercedes GL series (they do cover GLK)
  • Mercedes E class
  • Corvettes
  • Camaro ZL1

AMEX premium will charge $24.95 per rental and they cover:
  • Up to $100K for damage or theft and accidental death or dismemberment coverage ($250,000 for California residents), up to $15,000 for excess medical expenses per person, and up to $5,000 for excess personal property coverage ($15,000 for Florida residents)
  • Any car from Mercedes, pickup trucks, Porsche and 15 passenger vans.
  • There's no need to pay for the full amount with money, even if it's with points or coupon rental and you pay just $2 fees they will still cover you.

OK so then don't talk to begin with then.
what the hell is wrong with you? Someone asked a simple question, and I answered. Since I'm not gonna attempt to beat am agents price I shouldn't of answered something that had nothing to do with that?
Here's my original answer for you to ponder
from the rental company, its automatically included as its mandatory. I think it cost around 50 shekel a day

Again like I said dont talk to begin with and say "I think it's 50shekel" if your not willing to prove that you have any clue what you talking about when someone telling you it works otherwise. /end

you are particularly grumpy today. i said "think" as for some reason i was under that impression,  if i had proof it wouldn't of written "i think". I don't have to prove diddly squat ever.
In any case i just called hertz and they said its around $16 which is around 60 shekel and it is tied in with the price when going through an agent. I didn't get her name but she seemed like a very nice rep and you can argue it out with her if you'd like

IME with the OTA's, if the liability is included it'll say that. Otherwise, assume it's not. It probably says in the fine print.

Can you sign up for Primary coverage through AMEX and then pay at the end with a different card? Will you still be billed?

With the INK card offering primary CDW for biz travel only, is there any other Chase card aside from Sapphire that offers primary CDW?

Can't you pay with your card and than get reimbursed?
